SPARKS, Nev. (AP &, KRNV) — The Washoe County Medical Examiner’s Office has released the cause and manner of death from Kenneth and Sheryl Kelleher's autopsy results. Authorities have ruled that both husband and a wife died of natural causes.

Officials said Monday an autopsy revealed 54-year-old Kenneth Kelleher died of cardiovascular disease. They say 54-year-old Sheryl Kelleher died of bronchopneumonia.

“Comprehensive autopsies were conducted in each case,” said Washoe County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Ellen Clark. “Both autopsies showed no evidence of trauma, toxicological ingestions or environmental exposures that would cause death. Natural disease was relatively extensive for each case.”

Police said a family member found the couple dead at their home on Glen Molly Drive on Feb. 25. and investigators found no signs of criminal activity at the home.

seems like a robotic headline with a muddled subject. Y not be more journalistic, like 'Sparks couple died of natural causes', or 'Officials determine couple died naturally', or "Information released on Sparks couple's demise'; etc. Y do we need another acronym, Y do U assume we're following the developments That Closely? Y ME???
